Seas could rise higher than predicted, drenching coastal cities: study | Reuters

NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Global seas could rise nearly twice as much as previous, widely accepted estimates, according to a study published on Thursday saying low-lying cities face possible disaster by the end of the century. Sea levels could surge more than three feet (0.9 meter) by 2100 from melting Antarctic ice alone, on top of a three-foot rise already predicted, said the study by two American researchers that appeared in the science journal Nature. That same Antarctic ice melt could add nearly 50 feet (15 meters) of sea-level rise by the year 2500, it said. #United States #Environment #Italy #Hong Kong #Massachusetts
